Thank you for the prompt reply and the answer to my question. Yes, I can see that the multiple directories are links to a single directory.

Re: Out of memory: Killed process

I have configured the monitors from scratch and haven't done anything with the camera settings. How do I check if I am storing JPEGs or doing unnecessary decoding?

Re: How to backup from failed server

Thank you for your reply. Please could you advise how I take a copy of the ZMdb and the Monitors table. Is it a case of copying files or is there a command or utility I need to use?
